Davis ceramic artist Heidi Bekebrede has created a whimsical statue of a cat to assist the American String Teachers’ Association, Sacramento Section, in its efforts to raise funds for prizes and scholarships for its members’ students. Bekebrede has donated her artwork to the association in the past.

The statue will be raffled off at the association’s Spring Recital at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at Monroe Manor, 3225 Freeport Blvd. in Sacramento. Raffle tickets are $3 each or two for $5, and the buyer need not be present to win. Tickets may be purchased locally at Watermelon Music, 207 E St., which has the ceramic piece on display.

For more information, call 916-971-3677.

Professor Steve Nadler of the UC Davis department of entomology and nematology has been selected to receive the Henry Baldwin Ward Medal, presented by the American Society of Parasitologists in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of parasitology.

Nadler will be honored at the society’s 88th annual meeting, set June 26-29 in Quebec City, Quebec. The award, established in 1959, is named for H.B. Ward, the society’s first president and founder of the Journal of Parasitology.

Nadler studies the evolutionary biology and molecular phylogenetics of parasites, focusing mainly on nematodes. He joined the UCD faculty in 1996, serving as chairman of the department of nematology in 2005-11.
